Hey everyone,

keep watching this vid on youtube and am absolutely mesmerised!

As far as I know it was a bit of funk improv (from the comments on the vid) does anyone have any similar tabs, or even better guitar pro files of these kind of walking bass lines?

Thanks kindly

Love Cats by the Cure is a very punchy walking bass line. There are tabs on this site for it.

You can funk up or down any walking bassline. The Jazz band I'm in does a funky version of "Straight no chaser" by Thelonious Monk. Its all in the rhythm and feel.

Damn that guy's right hand technique is good! And funky as hell too!

Strutter by KISS!! Love Gun by KISS also! Gene Simmons is really fun, and easy, to play =)

It's just a regular walking line with some muted plucks to give percussive funk feel. I'd say look up lessons on Jaco's percussive 16th style, it will help you be able to do this and than some.

I love that bassline! Me and my teacher played along with "blue monk" and "So what" in a cafe shop, it had some pretty tricky accidentals

Also TS, from watching and listening your video once i can tell that the guy is in the key of E and the main "riff" is E - D - C - B and then he adds some little trills and runs around that (eg. on the second or third "riff" he does roots anbd fifths so E- B, D-A, C-G, B). After that he is just jamming in the E mixolydian which is a minor scale with a flattened 7th. You should experiment more with scales and different rhythms. Hopefully this'll start you off!
